Simple Moving Average

The average price of a security calculated by adding closing prices from the most recent trading days (for example, the last 10 days) and dividing by the number of trading days considered (in this case, 10). A simple moving average is easy to calculate and provides a quick look at a security's short-term trend. See also: Exponential moving average.
